US women's national team players and US Soccer have settled their long-running lawsuit over inequitable working conditions while leaving their dispute over unequal pay for additional litigation.
The parties filed a redacted public notice of the settlement with the federal court in Los Angeles on Tuesday while providing the complete agreement.
The deal with the world champion American women and the sport's governing body in the US calls for charter flights, hotel accommodations, venue selection and professional staff support equitable to that of the men's national team.
Players sued the USSF in March 2019 claiming they have not been paid equitably under their collective bargaining agreement compared to what is received by the men, who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
The women asked for more than $66 million ($A90m) in damages.
District Judge R. Gary Klausner dismissed the pay claim in May, ruling the women rejected a pay-to-play structure like the men's agreement and accepted greater base salaries and benefits.
But Klausner allowed aspects of their allegations of discriminatory working conditions to be put to trial.
Those issue were settled, and players may now ask a court of appeals to restore the wage claims.
The federation has argued that unequal bonus structures are the result of vastly dissimilar bonus payments for men's and women's tournaments from FIFA, soccer's world governing body.
FIFA awarded $400 ($A543m) in prize money for the 2018 men's World Cup, including $38 ($A52m) to champions France.
The prize money was $30m ($A41m) for last year's Women's World Cup, including $4m ($A5.4m) to the US, after the Americans won their second straight title.
FIFA has increased the total to $440m ($A598m) for the 2022 men's World Cup and FIFA President Gianni Infantino has proposed the global governing body doubles the women's prize money to $60m ($A82m) for the 2023 World Cup, co-hosted in Australia and New Zealand.
